|Location:||EL Lowder Regional Library|
|Description:||Join the Young Classic Book Club Thursday, April 5, 2018 as they meet from 4PM to 5 PM to discuss Animal Farm by George Orwell. The Young Classic Book Club meets the first Thursday of each month from 4PM to 5PM.
Manor Farm is like any other English farm, expect for a drunken owner, Mr. Jones, incompetent workers and oppressed animals. Fed up with the ignorance of their human masters, the animals rise up in rebellion and take over the farm. Led by intellectually superior pigs, like Snowball and Napoleon, the animals take charge of their destiny and remove the inequities of their lives. But as time passes, they realize that things aren't happening quite as expected. Animal Farm is, on one level, a simple story about barnyard animals. On a much deeper level, it is a savage political satire on corrupted ideals, misdirected revolutions and class conflict-themes as valid today as they were sixty years ago.
